Web search can be a remarkable research tool for students – and we’ve heard from educators that they could use some help to teach better search skills in their classroom. Working with Google Certified Teachers, we produced an initial set of nine search education lessons. From developing criteria to click on the right results to succeeding with the most challenging searches, the lessons they created will help students, and you, get the most of Google search in the classroom. We encourage you to check out the lessons online at: http://www.google.com/educators/searchlessons
Drawing on their vast experience with search education, Googler Dan Russell, along with Google Certified Teachers Kathleen Ferenz, Cheryl Davis and Lucy Gray will discuss how to teach search in the classroom. Having developed Google’s Search Education Lessons, they will discuss how you can customize the contents to the needs of your class and how guide your in-class discussions
I’ll be participating in a webinar tonight on the new search curriculum for students developed by Dan Russell, Cheryl Davis, Kathleen Ferenz and myself. Here’s the event description and I hope you can join us!
